We will view diverse exhibits, and Blithewold, through the eyes of Allison Newsome, the show’s curator, as well as one of the seven participating artists. As we go through the entire collection, Allison will share information about each artist, as well as give us a glimpse into the process of creating a large-scale sculpture installation.

Please register early, as tour groups are kept small. Wearing comfortable footwear is encouraged.
The tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours, after which refreshments will be served on the terrace.
